3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with no head, only a few tan bubbles on the surface, and an aroma of fresh ripe cherries, brown bread, licorice, dark malts and coffee beans. The taste is dominated by roasted malts, licorice, maybe some cherries, but not as sweet as in the aroma. The finish is bitter, but I would rather say it’s an espresso like bitter than a hop-like bitter.

Not my favote stout with the sourness in this beer. It’s pitch black, tastes a lot like coffee, guinness and a little sour. Carbo and body are nice though.

Black, beige trim. Really well balanced malting, heavy and full; yet, easy going. Some fruiyt mess in the aroma, cherry-like. Thwe sweer fruity flavours finishes nicely, with the alcohol with a dry, dark a some what light ending. Good for a 11% beer.

Bottle shared by Rencelas- thanks again, Jason! 010/666. Waxed cork and cage. Pours a very, very dark brown- near black- with a tan ring for a head. Aroma of brett, berries, roast, booze, oak, earth, and coffee. Flavor of tart berries, coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, tobacco, and earth. Medium-bodied, with a tart, roasty mouthfeel and moderate to low carbonation. Really unique and interesting.
